|My Dear Pray-ers,
This is The MERRY CHRISTMAS Issue, because if I wait until the 21st, I’ll have to send resources to you VIA FedEx and you know that these only go out on the 1st/11th/21st (more or less).
A 50 second video about FREE SHIPPING thru Christmas
What are you looking for?
We may have it (and at a good price, if you want my opinion).
This is the most fun book I’ve ever done
Men and women modeling prayer for us
After all, “Prayer is more caught than taught”
So, we have:
3 Prayer Heroes, in
3 Historic Eras, on
2 Continents, with
1 Nine Foot Tall Angel,
And a Host of Demons
It is a simple collection of 3 verses per day, A Promise, A Precept (or principle from God) and A Prayer
Over 1000 verses listed in an Appendix
Over 600 themes listed in an Appendix
It took me over 4 years to format and put together
Most people use this when they are done with their daily devotional
The challenge with it is wondering why they put certain verses together. . .
. . . Until you study the verses a bit and then you see their INCREDIBLE insight in the 1830’s
A Corny Novel
I know I’m going to get into trouble with this
And truly, I say that, “corny,” tongue and cheek
But I’ve tried to read them, and they’re corny to me
BUT EVERY WOMAN I have talked to that have read these, LOVE them
And I don’t mean “Like” them, they Love them
And, writing two series of 7 or 8 novels each they have been HUGELY SUCCESSFUL
It’s a stocking stuffer from 1887
The idea here is to help children associate prayer with the Word of God
One page has the 1887 graphic of a New Testament verse (written in children-ese)
And the opposite page has a short prayer, from the verse
I’m working on book two, the Old Testament
Read one or two of these at night with your child or grandchild
And they WILL begin to associate prayer with the Word of God
Sobering because of what is going on in our nation and world today
This wife and husband were kidnapped by Muslims they were missionaries to
Beth Moore wrote the forward
You’ll love and hate the book
It’s a good read, but a sobering read
Michael W Smith wrote this little book based on his song Healing Rain
There is a great little DVD in the back of the book
If you are like me and like Michael W Smith . . .
Okay, if you love Michael W Smith like me, you’ll like the book . . .
Forgive me, you’ll LOVE the book
And Just in case you’re looking for a gift for Mark (for me)
It would thrill my heart to have more of you sign up to support Kenya
Our Kenyan focus is a very important part of what we do
We are seeking 100 people/churches/etc to give $25.00
As of today we have 3 people/churches giving $200.00/mos
We’re very excited
See where we are at now!
Just a quick couple of links:
- To our Christmas gifts
- And our 25 Days of Prayer During the Christmas Season
Blessings my friends,
Remember to simply click the Icon (or the underlined title) to go to that article . . .
We started on December 1st and this has been REALLY good! Take a look at our 25 Days of Prayer During the Christmas Season. Please review our website everyday for the latest prayer.
This has been a favorite themed prayer tool for the last 4 years. Look at the details and themes every day. 25 Days of Prayer has daily themes, running from Brokenness to Giddiness to Promises. Just CLICK HERE.
From the beginning of Common Thread Ministries we have always realized there is a need for certain, “Pillars” if you will, to be incorporated into our ministry. At our website we have a variety of ways for you to find these pillars. The easiest of which is to go to the HOME PAGE
and scroll down to the pillar you are interested in exploring. We will continue to populate these pages with more and more Prayer Pillars
Are you still wondering what to do about Christmas? Well, well, well, I think that we have your solution!
– For the Novel Reader: The Pray-ers, 372 pg Historical Christian Fiction
– For the child/grandchild: An all-color remake of an 1887 Children’s Book of Verses
– For the Devotional Lover, a reformatted 1830’s Daily Devotional
The more I study and the more I teach, the more committed I am to prayer. And just as Michael Guido had a Prayer Board, so do I. This is a representation of my prayer board, which is on the wall, next to me as I type. We hope that over the internet we can make you aware of our prayer requests
We had some fun with the idea of #GivingTuesday earlier this week. Take a look at our post, A Different #GivingTuesday Strategy.
And if you’re interested:
- We are looking for 100 people to commit to $25.00/mos for our Kenya Ministry (See how far along we are).
- This will allow us to make one part time guy permanent and Mark can return three times each year to Kenya.
- We currently have 3 people/organizations that are giving $200.00 per month.
We have made some DRASTIC improvements to the calendar. Please take the time to check it out, and, if you will, use it to pray for us. Thank you.
